BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Breakin’ The Riddim (2017)

BREAKBEAT PARADISE:  Breakin' The RiddimRating: ★★★★★ Looks like it’s time for another themed EP from Breakbeat Paradise and no prizes for guessing that a release entitled Breakin’ The Riddim with cover art featuring a dreadlocked breakdancer entails a marriage of breakbeat and various reggae-related styles. No prizes either for guessing that it’s richer in bangers than a Walls sausage factory. Fredy High for example, heavies

TURNTILL & MERLIN feat. DOPPIA ERRE & SKY 189: Break A Day (2017)

Rating: ★★★★★ Looks like it’s not just The Allergies and Andy Cooper who’ve got Get Down fever in the last few weeks – for here is the new one from Chosen Few crew members Turntill & Merlin featuring Doppia Erre and Sky 189Break A Day. Alright, so The Get Down is set in 1978 and Break A Day lyrically eulogises 1989 but there’s more than a little block party feel to this drop – on

BADBOE feat. MC SHURESHOCK: Under The Spell EP (2017)

No need to look further if you’re in need of heavyweight funky breaks with original raps on top this month since Badboe‘s got you covered. It’s hard to imagine that Under The Spell will fail to cast its enchantment across dancefloors, turning as it does on a funky sample heavily buried in crunchy drums and synth fx with Oz rapper MC Shureshock busting bars on the mic

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Funk Originals (2017)

Breakbeat Paradise is a label which has made a name for itself over the last decade and more by providing party breakbeat junkies with all manner of musical goodies, not a few of which have made cheeky usage of samples borrowed from the golden era of syncopated soul. Now the label is returning the favour to the funk with an EP of all-original 70s-style tracks. Aptronymically entitled

DISCOBETA: Chinese Robots EP (2017)

Chinese Robots EP DiscobetaRating: ★★★★★ If you caught Discobeta‘s alpha-plus tune Chinese Robots on BBP’s Big Fat Mama Breaks compilation last year, you might have wondered why a tune this obviously all-conquering didn’t dominate a release centred around itself. Apparently BBP wondered the same thing, so prepare yourself for the march of Chinese Robots EP featuring a title track containing a positive

MR BRISTOW: City Love EP (2016)

city-love-ep-mr-bristowNo roll in the hay for Mr Bristow then – since, as the title of his new EP announces, he’s clearly all about the City Love. And doesn’t he just cavort around in the sounds of the megalopolitan sprawl like a some sort of priapic production pimp! He hustles Jermaine Dupri into a clinch with upbeat 70s pop hooks on the loose caboose of the title cut, gets Kool G Rap to do the damn thing with

LAPTOP FUNKERS: Feel The Goodness (2016)

Feel The Goodness Laptop FunkersLaptop Funkers follow up 2013’s Ready To Rumble EP with an eight-track mini album, Feel The Goodness, that suggests the intervening three years have left them champing at the bit. Why? Because here are bouncing party breaks that hark back to the glory days of early big beat and set them alongside like such latterday non-wobble big beat like minds such as Rory Hoy and DJ Axe

DJ ROAST BEATZ: Luxury Boom Bap – Remix EP (2016)

Luxury Boom Bap Remix EP Roast BEatzSometimes, roasting something twice is better than roasting something once! But which production cuisiniers to seek for twice-roasted beats if you’re already a capable beat chef yourself? In the case of DJ Roast Beatz you enlist the formidable skills of The Allergies, Shaka Loves You, El Bomba and DJ Maars to provide a veritable feast for the ears. The Allergies

BREAKBEAT PARADISE: Paradise Breaks Vol. IV (2016)

Paradise Breaks Vol IV BBPImagine if you will, a tropical island consisting of nothing more than a conveniently dancefloor-sized clearing and a couple of palm trees. Floating above cloud level at sunset. Oh yeah – and the conical under-surface of said island reveals the entire structure to be nothing less than a giant speaker. Someone clearly has, for this is the cover of the latest compilation of party breakbeat glory in the

DJ CLAIRVO: Rally In Paris EP (2016)

Rally In Paris EP ClairvoDJ Clairvo steps out from behind his Lack Jemmon project with Kid Panel once more to keep the revs up on his Rally In… series – this time with Rally In Paris. Inspired by what sounds like a recent high-octane point-to-point sojourn in the city of love racing from djing in clubs to djing in bars to djing house party after house party, Clairvo tries to aurally recreate his madcap hijinx with this
